Hi There, my LO is 4 months and 1 week. He was born at the 75th percentile, dropped and stayed at 50th, then was down to 25th at his 2 month check and now is down to the 10th percentile. Length and HC are both 50th and holding steady. I'm not sure what to think about this. His output seems very normal, he is a bright bubbly and well developing little guy. (rolls both ways, reaches for things, babbles interactively and loves discovering new things). I don't know what I'm doing wrong or why this has happened!! It makes me feel like I am failing him
Pediatrician says to keep nursing him as I am and offer him a bottle (pumped or formula) after feeding and to start introducing some cereal. He wasn't overly concerned but did say if he doesn't come back up on the chart we'll have to start to investigate why he's not gaining like he should.
The only factor I can think of is that he seems to have started teething a few weeks ago (drooling like mad, stuffing both fists along with everything else into his mouth and even sometimes crying out when he bites down).
Any thoughts would be appreciated... thanks so much.
